Chopart dislocation

S Rammelt, M Amlang, A K Sands, M Swords
The ideal treatment of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures is still controversially discussed. Because of the variable fracture patterns and the vulnerable soft tissue coverage an individual treatment concept is advisable. In order to minimize wound edge necrosis associated with extended lateral approaches, selected fractures may be treated percutaneously or in a less invasive manner while controlling joint reduction via a sinus tarsi approach. Fixation in these cases is achieved with screws, intramedullary locking nails or modified plates that are slid in subcutaneously...

BACKGROUND: Injuries to the mid-tarsal (Chopart) joint are frequently overlooked or misinterpreted and therefore, not adequately treated at initial presentation. Malunion results in a loss of essential joint function and a three-dimensional malalignment leading to considerable impairment of global foot function and a rapid development of painful posttraumatic arthritis. METHODS: If no symptomatic arthritis is present, joint displacement or non-union may be subject to secondary anatomical reconstruction and internal fixation...

BACKGROUND: Injuries to the Chopart joint of the tarsal foot are relatively rare, difficult to recognize and are associated with significant long term morbidity. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 16-year-old boy attended the emergency department after a forklift truck ran over his left foot. Physical examination and X-ray evaluation revealed a fracture of the Chopart joint with a navicular bone fracture and dislocation of the calcaneo-cuboidal joint. Operative open reduction and internal fixation was performed...

We present a 49-year-old man with a traumatic subamputation of the forefoot, associated with lacerated wound in correspondence of the dorsal surface of the right foot, with injuries of tendinous, ligamentous and vascular structures and with the loss of talus head. The patient underwent salvage arthrodesis of the talonavicular and calcanealcuboid joints with graft bone harvested from the iliac crest. The patient was re-evaluated during a clinical and radiographic follow-up. The arthrodesis was consolidated in ∼3 months...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of headless compression screws for Lisfranc joint injuries. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was made on clinical data of 34 patients (36 feet) with Lisfranc joint injuries who underwent open reduction and internal fixation with headless compression screws between January 2006 and January 2012. There were 22 males (24 feet) and 12 females (12 feet), aged 21-73 years (mean, 38.9 years). The causes of injury included traffic accident in 16 cases (17 feet), falling from height in 11 cases (12 feet), crushing in 5 cases (5 feet), and sports in 2 cases (2 feet)...

In published studies, a very rare, special type of Chopart dislocation termed a swivel dislocation has been reported. This injury is characterized by dislocation of the talonavicular joint, but the calcaneocuboid joint remains intact. The foot creates a typical rotational movement without inversion or eversion. The axis of rotation is the interosseous talocalcaneal ligament, which remains intact. We report the case of an 18-year-old male who had experienced a medial swivel dislocation of the talonavicular joint associated with displaced fractures of the fourth and fifth metatarsals...

Nutcracker fractures of the tarsal navicular and cuboid usually result from dislocations of the mid-tarsal (Chopart's) joint. The classic pathomechanism consists of forced adduction or abduction (medial or lateral stress) mostly in combination with axial force. The resulting injuries are frequently misjudged or underestimated with respect to their potential consequences for global foot function. Radiographic imaging includes plain radiographs in exact standard projections and computed tomographic scanning. Classification of Chopart fracture-dislocations is based on the proposed pathomechanics and the direction of the dislocating force...

The midfoot is a complex association of five bones and many articulations between the forefoot metatarsals and the talus and calcaneus, which make up the hindfoot. These anatomic relationships are connected and restrained by an even more complex network of ligaments, capsules, and fascia, which must function as a unit to provide normal and painless locomotion. The common eponyms of Lisfranc and Chopart refer to the distal and proximal joint relationships of the midfoot, respectively. Midfoot injuries range from single ligament strains to complicated fracture-dislocations involving multiple bones and joints...

Injuries of the midfoot comprise fractures, dislocations and/or fracture dislocations of the Chopart and Lisfranc joint lines. Fracture dislocations, in particular, represent prognostically severe lesions which may compromise foot function to a substantial degree. A number of injuries of the midfoot (up to one quarter) are still primarily overlooked. As such, a diagnostic algorithm is essential for the adequate detection of the injury components and planning of the therapeutic approach. Standard x-rays in three planes (dorso-plantar, lateral and lateral oblique views) represent the diagnostic basis which is supplemented by CAT scanning and multiplanar reconstruction, especially in cases where a potential midfoot lesion is suspected...

Injuries involving the Chopart joint complex are relatively rare and frequently missed or misdiagnosed, often leading to a poor functional outcome. This study was performed to determine the outcome and morbidity in patients with Chopart joint injuries, and to increase awareness of this severe injury. Patients with a Chopart dislocation or fracture-dislocation, treated between January 2004 and January 2010, were identified using the appropriate diagnosis code and reviewing all radiographs of patients diagnosed with hindfoot or midfoot injuries treated at our institution...

The authors report a special type of Chopart dislocation named as swivel dislocation or tarsal rotation. This injury is characterized by dislocation of the talonavicular joint but the calcaneocuboid joint remains intact.The foot creates a typical rotational movement but it does not evert or invert. The axis of rotation is interosseous talo-calcaneal ligament, which remains intact. In the reported case the medial swivel dislocation is present in combination with fracture-dislocation of the ankle joint with diaphyseal fracture of fibula and segmental fracture of tibia in the same extremity in multiple injury patient...

UNLABELLED: Isolated midtarsal (Chopart's) joint dislocations are rare, although cases involving medial, lateral, plantar, and dorsal displacement have been reported. These dislocations are often associated with osteochondral fractures. To the best of our knowledge, isolated dorsal midtarsal dislocation owing to plantarflexion of the forefoot on the hindfoot with the ankle in a neutral or dorsiflexed position is rare. In this article, we describe a case of isolated Chopart's dorsal dislocation and discuss the mechanism of injury, management, and outcome...

The case of an initially overlooked transligamentary Chopart dislocation following distorsion trauma of the foot is presented and the treatment and long-term course are discussed. A 55-year-old female patient sustained severe injury to the left foot after falling from a height of 4 m.. The instep was severely swollen and there was deformity with adduction of the forefoot and supination position. The peripheral pulse and sensitivity were intact. The conclusion from local radiographic investigations was that there were no signs of fracture or dislocation...

Fractures and dislocations of the midfoot and Chopart complex are among the most difficult foot injuries to manage. The treating surgeon is faced with a wide array of treatment challenges. Plain radiographs often grossly underestimate the extent of injury. The anatomy in this region of the foot is quite intricate with numerous articulations. Fractures can occur in isolation or as part of a more complex injury pattern. Misdiagnosis and under treatment can lead to severe alterations of both normal anatomy and function...

A case of isolated dorsal midtarsal (Chopart) dislocation resulting from blunt trauma is reported. The mechanism of injury, management, and long-term outcome are discussed. A 45-year-old inebriated man fell from a 4-m height and landed on his feet. He had immediate bilateral foot and back pain. Radiographs showed a burst fracture of the second lumbar vertebra, a left Pott's fracture, and an isolated dorsal dislocation of the right midtarsal (Chopart) joint. No neurovascular deficits or signs of compartment syndrome were noted...

Midfoot injuries of children are rare entities and often caused by high energy trauma mechanisms. Foot fractures in children may pose a diagnostic challenge but they usually have a good prognosis. In special cases computed tomography is necessary to find the right diagnosis in addition to plain X-rays. Based on two cases of midfoot injuries, a type II open Lisfranc fracture dislocation and a dislocation of a Chopart's joint, we describe the causes, diagnosis, and possibilities for treatment of juvenile midfoot injuries...
